The Belarusian photographer Tatiana Tsyganova is among the 50 best portrait photographers, according to Sony World Photography Awards 2017.
About the contest
I knew that the competition of such a scale leaves me very small chances in principle. In late January, I received a letter from the organization in which they congratulated me and said that I was in the top 50.
I have already received several offers from foreign magazines devoted to photography, where I could publish my works and articles.
I had a period when I was engaged in wedding photography. I cannot say that the competition was that high, that I lacked clients. I've always had enough of them. In the field of wedding photographing, there is always a kind of price gradation. And the photographer of every price category will find a customer.
Color determines very much. With color, you can even completely change a person's appearance. And this person will not even know.
About emotions in photos
First of all, I'm interested in emotions. I try to catch emotions. It might interest me the most. If I have two models: one very beautiful and the second with usual appearance, but being able to work very well with emotions and face, then I will focus on the second model.
